How To Style The Polka Dot Trend

A huge trend on last Fall’s catwalks, polka dots have stuck around. If you thought polka dots were a thing of the past, it’s time to warm up to this highly versatile, classic print.

Since the ’50s women have loved polka dot print. It is firmly entrenched in the world of fashion and at this point in it’s fashion life cycle it has started to break out of it’s shell. There are many ways to style polka dots, and designers and street style stars have brought them into the limelight.

Two of my favorite ways to style polka dots are with other polka dots of different sizes/shapes, or with solid white or black separates.

Solid Separates

This is a classic, can’t-go-wrong styling option. If you want to dip your toe into the polka dot waters while making it look like you know exactly what you’re doing, try this out. Pair your one polka dot item with solid black or white separates and you’ve got a guaranteed stylish outfit. You can even pair it with a colorful purse and fun accessories to step your game up a notch.
